Not so extreme heat, not exceeding 38 in the West, with thunderstorms in the afternoon next week

The heat wave is coming to an end and the heat will start to loosen from this Sunday. However, this does not mean that it will no longer be hot, it will simply not be as intense and will not reach 40 ºC as happened again this Saturday (Lleida-la Femosa- with 40.6 ºC). The warm Saharan wave will be moving inland from the western Mediterranean and will allow an Atlantic trough to approach our latitudes, generating more clouds and some thunderstorms that will cool the atmosphere, especially in mountainous areas. . Last night it was warm again, almost tropical, with minimum values ​​that did not fall below 24 ºC in the city of Barcelona.

Civil Protection has already deactivated the PROCICAT Plan due to the heat wave once the episode of widespread extreme temperatures has ended. This Sunday we will no longer reach 40 degrees in the lands of Lleida, but the thermometers will still move between 36 ºC and 38 ºC, so the heat is not over, despite not being so intense. The only warning we have today is the gusts of wind from the south and east, with maximum gusts that can exceed 60 or 70 km / h north of Terres de l’Ebre or the southern limit of the Pla de Lleida.

Warning for strong winds

This Sunday we will only see some low clouds or coastal fog that may appear on the coast, especially on the Costa Brava. The winds will be from the east and will increase the feeling of drizzle. The rest is expected to have clear skies and still high thermometers, although the heat will not be so extreme. In the Girona region, the maximum will slow down to around 33 ºC and in the West they will be able to drop below 38 degrees. Coastal temperatures will hover between 28 and 30 degrees. There will be some afternoon clouds in the Pyrenees or Pre-Pyrenees but there will be no rainfall.

On Monday the weather will start to change, with more clouds on the coast and some coastal fog and also with an increase in cloud cover in the West and the western Pyrenees. An isolated thunderstorm is expected at mountain points and it will continue to be hot, with no extreme values ​​but which will still reach 37 degrees in the West. The nights will not be so warm and in the liotral they will be able to lower of the 21 degrees. In the Pyrenees or where it rains, the atmosphere will be significantly cooler.

In fact, the dynamics of showers and thunderstorms will be repeated on Tuesday, with a calmer morning or with thin clouds, and an unsafe afternoon. Everything seems to indicate that after a small rise in temperature at the beginning of the week, the thermometer will begin to normalize, with temperatures more suitable for these dates and with slightly cooler nights and in which you will rest a little better.
